Upgrade your health by changing the foods you eat with Matthew Nagra, ND
Play • 1 hr 54 min
In Episode 113 I sit down with Naturopathic Doctor Matthew Nagra to talk about how he uses evidence based nutrition science to help his patients upgrade their health. If you are looking for an episode that consolidates several things previously spoken about on the show, along with findings from new research then I think you will really enjoy this episode. Particularly if you like the more in-depth science episodes.

In this episode we talk about:

  • The latest EPIC-Oxford study on bone health
  • The health advantages that people have who adopt plant-predominant or exclusive dietary patterns
  • Naturopathy as a form of health care
  • How Dr Nagra helps his patients make sustainable changes
  • Common questions Dr Nagra gets from patients (Including questions about protein, soy, lectins, cooking oils etc)
  • His personal food philosophy
  • LDL-Cholesterol being an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease and his thoughts on the carnivore diet
  • Important nutrients and supplements for people reducing their consumption of animal foods
  • A new study on iodine status in Norwegian pescatarians, vegetarians and vegans.
  • and much more

Bone Health:
2 - How we know this study failed to properly adjust for BMI and calcium intake. Twos studies below show the risk of fracture at varying BMI’s and levels of calcium intake. In the EPIC-Oxford study the researchers adjusted for the wrong part of the risk curve. As this is quite complex, it will be summarised in a blog post and a post on my Instagram profile in the coming week.
https://www.bmj.com/content/342/bmj.d1473 (calcium and bone fracture risk is non linear)
https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00198-005-1863-y (BMI and bone fracture risk is non linear)
4 - For a deep dive into these above studies I recommend watching Dr Avi Bitterman’s summary https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RULbeJnfIg&t=3819s

Soy:
2 - Case study of male consuming around 12 serves of soy a day. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/18558591/
3 - Second case study on a male subject consuming high amounts of soy https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S089990071000359X


Health advantages of a vegan or plant-based dietary pattern:
1 - 14% lower risk of premature death in vegetarians and vegans (from two UK cohorts) under 75 years of age who havent changed their diet:
2 - 12% lower risk of premature death in vegetarians (including vegans) compared with non-vegetarians in the AHS-2 American cohort
3 - Lower risk of diabetes in people adopting plant-based dietary patterns
4 - Lower risk of developing and dying from heart disease in people adopting plant-based dietary patterns
5 - Lower risk of developing cancer in people adopting plant-based dietary patterns

LDL as an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease
1 - The consensus statement from the European Atherosclerosis Society Consensus Panel

New iodine study on pescatarians, vegetarians and vegans from Norway

#55 Fatal Conveniences™: Crayons: Safe or Toxic?
Everyone has fond childhood memories revolving around crayons. These colorful waxy sticks represent hours of creative fun. I was an avid coloring book fan, and I can’t even tell you how many boxes of crayons I went through as a kid. No one wants to have these cherished memories tainted, but are crayons safe or toxic? And what are they doing to our planet? Welcome to Fatal Conveniences™ This is a bite-sized segment that parallels The Darin Olien Show. In these segments, we get into society's Fatal Conveniences™. I define these as the things we may be doing because the world we live in makes us believe we have to. These things save us time and trick us into thinking they're actually good for us. But it's those same things that are breaking down our health, and the health of the environment around us. I've spent most of my adult life obsessively researching these "conveniences." On every show, I pick one topic, and we dive into it. My goal is to make you more aware of these traps so that you can push back on them. Remember, it starts with you and the choices you make. So, if you're willing to look at your world from a different perspective and make little tweaks that amount to big changes, then this segment is for you. Between 45,000 and 75,000 lbs of broken crayons are discarded in US landfills every year. This one is tough for me, because I really don’t want to bash crayons. I love crayons! We all did. And I’m sure if you have kids, you have multiple boxes of these colorful things all over the house. So I’ll just cut to the chase. Crayons consist of paraffin, which is a petroleum, crude oil by-product. And lab tests show some crayon brands are full of toxins like lead and even asbestos. In this segment, I break down the uncomfortable truths about this kid-favorite drawing tool. It’s not just our kids we need to worry about. Unfortunately, these things are ending up in our landfills and waterways. But it’s not all bad news. Some brands are safer than others. Like most things, the cheaper it is, the more toxic it probably is. Thankfully, there are plenty of environmentally friendly, safe alternatives. And I’ll be sure to give you plenty of resources to find those as well. So don’t worry guys, you don’t have to hide those coloring books. Let’s just make a conscious effort to be aware of what’s in our kids’ favorite crafting supplies. Other info in this segment: * The history of Crayons * The history of Crayola * Why are these toxins allowed in kid products? * Crayons and the planet * Safe alternatives Links & Resources: Major Brands of Crayons Contain Asbestos Warning After Asbestos Found in Crayons Toys R’ Us and Other Retailers Remove Crayons The Efforts Crayola is Making to Improve Crazy Crayons - The National Crayon Recycling Program Eco-Friendly Crayons?
